Painter Poverty Q4

Published by Paola Avendano on

While a simple answer might be to say that large employers should pay higher wages, I think it is more important that they work to reduce the same barriers that policy needs to work on reducing. Employers can do much better in developing talent acquisition strategies that do not penalize workers with criminal backgrounds. They can also work to advocate for the changes that local and state government should make to complement the changes in HR practices that they can make.
